Last Friday, the administration released pandemic guidance for faith communities after weeks of debate flared between the WH and the CDC. By Saturday, that version was replaced by updated guidance that no longer includes any reference to choirs or congregant singing and the risk for spreading virus. The altered guidance also deleted a reference to "shared cups" among items, including hymnals and worship rugs, that should not be shared. The updated guidelines also added language that said the guidance "is not intended to infringe on rights protected by the First Amendment."
